Potential Big Injury

Damn the new Nike cleats players like Harris and Bergen have been wearing. In the first game we saw multiple players including Harris slip a few times. I believe this was due to the cleats. In the game this past week against PSU we may have lost one of our biggest offensive weapons to an injury that I believe was due to his cleats.

With about 5:00 left in the 3rd quarter PSU punted the ball down the east side of the field. Bergen attempted to get the ball as it was heading out of bounds near the goal line. When he turned up field his left foot slipped, extending his leg out away from him further than he anticipated. The commentator even noticed that he was limping a bit as he trotted towards the sideline. I believe he slipped because of the new (not always better) cleats.

Bergen was in one more play that I could find after that slip, and he did not appear to be running hard. I could definitely be wrong, but I am afraid he will be lost for a few weeks. If I was the team I would hold him back for a minimum of four weeks. Hamstrings are notoriously difficult to return from-especially when you are a player like 5 and you rely on speed.

He seemed to be in good spirits during the post game presser, so hopefully it's nothing too big, but I am very afraid that we just lost one of our most important and versatile offensive weapons for a long time, and he may never be the same again this year. Heal up Bergen, we wish you the best.

I suggest you take a look at the prior punt return.

Man there’s jumping to some conclusions and then there’s JUMPING to some conclusions. I saw him limping a bit too. Maybe they hold him out and then we have a bye week. I’m not sure I’d automatically assume he is pretty much done for the season. Let’s chill out a little and see how it plays out.

I have a pronounced limp when I first stand up. Is that bad?

Griz are screwed. Better call a press conference so Bobby can answer injury questions from the very, very competent and professional reporters...

I thought there was a potential for injury every time you got in the game? LOL...

Not if you have the right cleats on. Bad, new cleats are Griz Kryptonite. Lots of limping.

In MT's defense, I was a little concerned we didn't see Bergen again after that play also. I hope that was just precautionary.

I read the first part of the post as saying the new cleats could cause a serious injury (that hasn't happened yet). It then took a turn.

Which reminds me: Hurricane Ian is pummeling the FL gulf coast. I saw a bit of maroon on the radar, so I'm worried that the storm might turn and come to Missoula next. WAGriz in shambles. When that happens, where do you guys think we'll play home games?

When the surge hits the field we’ll be moving to the INFERNO….obviously!

I was certain this “Potential Serious Injury” was going to be a reference to that shithole Holt Arena and the concrete pad they play on. That place is a f###[#] train wreck waiting to happen.

They replaced that several years ago. They have the same sprinturf used in Wash/Griz.

All this time I thought it was to amplify the sound.
